A Prick of the Conscience: Shakespeare in a Dream

 

As Banquo was a prick of the conscience

So am I.

Holinshed’s Banquo rewritten, reimagined,

In a Shakespearean consciousness

Upon the lips

Of the sweetest

Dream.

There Banquo lives.

And breathes.

His heart beats true.

As Banquo was a prick of the conscience,

So am I.

Dream of me.
